Red Dog earns Zinc Mark: Teck Resources

Teck Resources said its Red Dog Operations, the largest critical mineral mine in the United States, has been awarded the Zinc Mark in recognition of environmentally and socially responsible production practices.

It is the first mining site to receive the standalone Zinc Mark from The Copper Mark.

“With Red Dog being awarded the Zinc Mark, all of Teck’s managed base metals operations are now verified and recognized for strong environmental and social performance, illustrating our focus on responsible production for the benefit of our customers, and for the environment and people where we operate,” said Jonathan Price, president and CEO of Teck. 

The Copper Mark multi-metals approach includes the Zinc Mark as well as Molybdenum Mark and Nickel Mark. Producers of these metals are able to use The Copper Mark assurance framework to achieve their respective “Mark”. 

Red Dog is located about 170 kilometers north of the Arctic Circle in northwest Alaska, near Kotzebue.
